George foreman grill
The grill was invented by Michael Boehm and Robert Johnson, not George Foreman. The connection between the boxer and the grill came about soon after George Foreman's comeback in 1994, at the age of 45 when he regained the heavyweight world championship. He was well known for eating two burgers before every match, which made him a good candidate for spokesperson for the fat-reducing grill. Boehm pitched the idea to Salton Inc. (as they were known at the time) after Foreman agreed.
The Lean Mean Fat-Reducing Grilling Machine as it became known was promoted with distinctive infomercials which featured Foreman. A combination of his affable personality and the unique features of the product made it an instant success. Such was the popularity of these infomercials that Foreman's famous tagline "It's so good I put my name on it!", is now part of popular culture. In Asia, the grill is endorsed and promoted by both George Foreman and Jackie Chan.
